Glory Hope Mountain, is a sprawling, biographical album based on the life of Rolf Klausener’s Honduran-born mother, Gloria Esperanza Montoya. Armed with heart-drums, gut-strings, ukuleles and marimbas, The Acorn are guided by spirit voices and the rhythms of rivers.
Glory Hope Mountain was recorded in a rented house in Ottawa by recording engineer Jarrett Bartlett (of Little Bullhorn Prods). Featured on the album are members of Ohbijou, The Wooden Stars, Flecton Big Sky, Fiftymen, and many others. Singer Casey Mecija provides vocals for the final track.
The album was released on 25 September 2007 on Paper Bag Records. It is the band's second full-length. The album art was inspired by local Ottawa mixed-media artist Amy Alice Thompson's series "Gloria".
